Coming to Santa Barbara County February 8 – 10, Grupo Bella is a multi-faceted ensemble from the Los Angeles area that uses mariachi instrumentation to perform many different styles of music, with a modern twist. Grupo Bella offers a wide repertoire of music from traditional mariachi, boleros, son Jarocho, huasteco, Mexican pop, even a few American Classics, tropical music, salsa, cumbias and much more. The six women and one man who make up Grupo Bella have all studied in prestigious universities and have also worked on Grammy Nominated/wining albums.
